This is the world’s most exclusive coupe. Only 550 units will be built. Not exactly the most beautiful thing around, however that Bentley Badge on it carries an ultra-premium. This is the Bentley Brooklands Coupe, which Bentley unveiled at Geneva 2007.

The name Brooklands pays a tribute to the immortal “Bentley Boys” on the famous Brooklands racetrack in the 1920s. The classic design cues were also meant to reflect the era.

Associating the Bentley Brooklands Coupe with the racetrack is nothing mismatched though, as this Bentley coupe features the most powerful V8 engine ever Crewe-built, sporting 530bhp and 1050Nm of torque from it’s 6.75 litres of displacement, thanks to twin turbocharging.

This is mated to a ZF 6-speed autonmatick with a sophisticated quick-locking torque converter, with semi-automatic manual gear selection.
